How Dumb Would You Have To Be To Fall For This?

TOKYO, Oct. 19 — On a narrow Tokyo street, near a beef bowl restaurant and a pachinko parlor, Aya Tsukioka demonstrated new clothing designs that she hopes will ease Japan’s growing fears of crime.

Show Urban Camouflage Deftly, Ms. Tsukioka, a 29-year-old experimental fashion designer, lifted a flap on her skirt to reveal a large sheet of cloth printed in bright red with a soft drink logo partly visible. By holding the sheet open and stepping to the side of the road, she showed how a woman walking alone could elude pursuers — by disguising herself as a vending machine.

Somehow, I think conceal-carry would be a better solution than this for preventing crime.

You got that right, a little lead up the ass always has always been a much better crime stopper than than some far-fetched fashion idea.

A 12 gauge street-sweeper under that comical disguise would present a reasonable answer to street crime.

She might want to put the lower part of her costume over her shoes, which are a dead giveaway.

The Japanese have been at the mercy of those with weapons since the general populace was disarmed in the 17th century. They have virtually no concept of self-defense, especially after the pacifist movement gained the upper hand in the aftermath of WWII. They are thoroughly brainwashed into believing Guns Are Bad.

Proposal: excellent. Prospects: nil.
